Vacheron Constantin Overseas ref 42042 Blue Dial


Rare and easy to read…

The Vacheron Overseas became one of the most desirable watches in the past two years, with new versions having long waiting lists and the pre-owned market showing huge growth.
This is a beautiful Overseas with the desirable 37mm case, which wears bigger thanks to the signature integrated bracelet.

This watch houses a very rare blue glossy dial with applied stud hour markers and luminous Arabic hours. Thought to be made for the American market, it is understood that only 75 pieces with this dial were manufactured.

The hands do not glow and we assume they have been relumed with paint at some point. The case and the cool stylized bezel are in outstanding condition.
This watch features the interesting and detailed engraving of a sailing ship on the case back. The integrated bracelet remains in excellent condition and will fit a wrist size up to 18.5cm. The automatic movement has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.

Our Service

Each vintage timepiece is individually selected and carefully inspected by our team of experts. After we buy a watch it is mechanically inspected and fully checked by our watchmaker. If necessary, the movement will be fully serviced and tested to ensure it is running to our exacting standards.

We will always describe the watch as fully as we can in our sales texts. Our zoomable images are of the highest possible quality and form an important part of each watch’s description. We will never hide or cover up any element of any watch we sell.

Key to our unparalleled service is Fedex Priority shipping, fully insured. Once you have received your watch, we encourage you to inspect it thoroughly. If you are not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We offer a 14 days return policy. Simply return the watch to get a full refund of the original purchase price.

Our Warranty

We offer a one-year warranty on the mechanical function of the watch, starting from the day of purchase. We do not guarantee the waterproof nature of any (vintage) watch, unless expressly made in writing. Therefore, our warranty will not cover any damage done to the case and/or movement by water or moisture entering the watch. Our warranty does not apply to accidental damage or mishandling of your watch and does not extend to the bracelet, case parts (including pushers, winding stem, crown and bezel), watch glass, dial and hands.
